We were on holiday in Victoria and dropped into the Cafe Mexico for dinner. We didn't have a reservation and the restaurant was busy, but we were seated within 10 minutes. We love Mexican food, but sometimes find it very heavy and filling. Both dishes we ordered were light, fresh, delicious and satisfying without being too heavy. We had the vegetarian tacos and the chicken salsa verde enchiladas. The margaritas were also really good! The restaurant had a contemporary recently renovated decor, but we found it quite noisy. Our server was efficient and friendly.

We finally went to Cafe Mexico after it's been revamped/renovated.

The food is your typical North American version of Mexican food. Pretty blah.

The prices are mid-range the food meh. We only went here a couple of times before they renovated and it was basically the same meh food. The service was decent.

Probably won't return for a very long time.

We ordered the Street Fries and a basic meal. We were totally enchanted with the street fries! So delicious!

We use to come here all the time before the remodel. Since we’ve been 3 times and the last, will likely be our last.

Food was good. We had a party of 8 for my husbands bday, and two of them were children. I was quite disappointed with the lack of children’s options. It’s not kid friendly one bit!

My husband asked for a Mexican bulldog and the server said no, they didn’t have those. Then he saw the bartender making one for another table so my husband went and asked the bartender about it, and sure enough, he made him one.

The second we were done eating our server (in a very wrinkled white T-shirt) brought the bill. Didn’t ask if we wanted it split (again, 8 of us) nor did he even offer dessert.

It was just very “meh”. The whole experience
